Explore Scientific 127 mm Carbon Fiber Triplet APO ED Refractor with 3" TRUE Feather Touch Dual Speed Focuser
This 127mm Carbon Fiber APO ED Triplet Refractor by Explore Scientific almost entirely gets rid of chromatic aberrations with its sophisticated air-spaced triplet optical design. By coupling proprietary, EMD enhanced multi-layer coatings with genuine HOYA extra-low dispersion glass on all optical surfaces, this refractor produces stunning, high-contrast images. The durable yet light carbon fiber OTA reduces focus changes due to shrinking or expanding that is common with other OTAs due to varying temperatures. Set up is quick and easy, leaving you with more time to spend behind the eyepiece.This package includes a 3" TRUE Feather Touch Focuser, 2" Adapter, 1.25" Adapter, and a 99% Dielectric 2" Diagonal.
The Explore Scientific 127 mm ED APO includes a 3" Feather Touch TRUE R&P Focuser. This heavy duty focuser is perfect for imaging. It is fully rotatable, has precision dual speed (10:1) with tension adjustment and a lock to obtain and hold perfect focus. The 2" and 1.25" included eyepiece holders use a compression ring to hold your eyepieces and other accessories snugly without scratching or slipping.
